  • How are you involved in your community?

    I have served on boards and executive committees of non-profits and community organizations such as United Way, Birmingham Education Foundation, Exceptional Foundation, and Rotary Club of Birmingham. My parents taught my brothers and me to be involved in our community, and we have followed that principle closely throughout our adult lives.

    At Balch, I helped create a program for minority or under-represented students entering law school. It is a two-day intensive symposium that helps them succeed both in law school and as young attorneys. We call it the Susan B. Livingston Boot Camp for Success. The goal is to create more diversity in the legal profession, and to nurture and develop young talent beyond socio-economic distinctions. Over the past six years, law students from across the Southeast have attended our Boot Camp program. Many of those young attorneys are now successfully practicing law across the country.
